2015 DIRECTOR’S JAWS CHARDONNAY

Director’s wines were created to honor Francis Ford Coppola’s two great loves: wine and film. As we near our 10-year anniversary of producing these wines, we thought it apropos to commemorate this milestone with a line-up of limited edition wines inspired by directors and movies that Francis holds in greatest admiration. These wines feature on the labels reproductions of retro-futuristic movie posters by Laurent Durieux, an artist much admired by Coppola.

These wines are set apart from our original Director’s wines. They are different blends that feature fruit sourced not just from Sonoma County, but Monterey, Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo and beyond. By blending fruit of various appellations, we’re able to create wines with expressive textural dimension and lush, juicy fruit flavors.

VINTAGE NOTES

2015 was a great year for Chardonnay around the state, especially in Sonoma and Monterey. Great sun exposure and an early harvest brought fruit in at peak ripeness. In this blend, the fruit from Sonoma gave us tropical pineapple tones while the Monterey grapes contributed crisp lemon lime citrus notes.

TASTING NOTES

Enjoy a perfume of exotic aromas including ripe tropical fruits like pineapple and passion fruit, sweet Meyer lemon and fresh baked shortbread cookies. The rich, creamy palate opens with the flavor of home baked lemon bars followed by impressions of melon and baking spices. You’ll also find classic Chardonnay minerality and a warm toasted oak finish. In keeping with the movie’s seaside setting, this wine pairs beautifully with lobster rolls, fried clams, fresh oysters, and grilled fish.
